A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life's Purpose | [Eckhart Tolle]

A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life's Purpose

Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one. In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are and learn to live and breathe freely.

Publisher's Summary

Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents listeners with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.

In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are, which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are, and learn to live and breathe freely.

    "the power of now"

    Once you understand how to get rid of the ego, which controls your life every minute, your life will become simple and peaceful again. Half of the stuff that keeps you from sleeping at nite is directly related to this. Following ego's directions each day might eventually kill you from stress. Get rid of it! The book starts out a bit slow but once your lightbulb comes on it is very easy to follow. You might not want to be driving your car when you listen because every sentence he says has much meaning. You almost have to listen for a bit and then ponder what you just heard. If we teach this one thing to children now we will eventually have a very nice planet.

    "Great Book.... If you READ it"

    This is a great book, however someone other than the author should have read it. The author is monotoned and does not engage the listener. I finally broke down and purchased a hard copy, because I couldn't take it any more. He really should hire a professional reader/actor/something to narrate this book. Although these are his words, his auditory skills left a lot to be desired.

    "Eastern philosophies re-packaged with Christianity"

    This is definitely a good and easy book for someone who has not familiar with the concepts of mainly Buddhism/Hinduism(Yogis)/Islam(Sufism).

    Author's use of biblical references may help most people in the west digest the concept of self and Ego that has been taught in the east for centuries. It was apparent that these references were used for a reason that may have also helped it become a best seller. No surprise that people are jumping all over after reading this book. Well, why shouldn't they be, anything that can help them realize a tiny fraction of their "self" is surprising if not shocking.

    Information on Self and Ego in this book is shallow compared to other books by many Sufis or Yogis, but it is good enough to wake up ordinary people who were not exposed to these concepts and meditations. It certainly help me read more on this topic and realize certain things that I usually take it for granted.

    "A New Earth"

    I listened to this book as a favor to a friend. I was not excited about it because I thought that the contents of the book would be like all of the "self-help" books I have read in the past.

    I was very surprised to find that this book contains many profound ideas. I will be purchasing the hard copy so that I may refer to it.

    The author pulls from many sources including the major religions but he never suggests that one might be better than another.

    "Let the shift happen!"

    This is one of the best books I have every came across with. I was already ab it familier with his teaching, but the way he put things is really great.. It just hits you, if you listen with open mind.. These are time and proven ancient facts, a must read, and most of all must implementation..

    "Uplifting and insightful"

    A profound and spiritually alive book. I recommend first reading his "The Power of Now” as a foundation for this book.

    "Even better as a talking book"

    I loved this book when I was first give it in India by a wonderful and selfless man who thought I needed it (and I did). I will ever be in his debt. This book truly changed my life by changing the way I respond to the 'chattering' in my head. I hope it will do the same for you. Buy it and listen, but be warned, this is not a book for the car, I found my concentration was on the book and certainly not on the road.

    "Life Changing!"
    What made the experience of listening to A New Earth the most enjoyable?

    The way it was told


    What other book might you compare A New Earth to, and why?

    I cannot compare it to any other book since it is unique.


    Which character – as performed by Eckhart Tolle – was your favourite?

    N/a


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me stronger as a person.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has enabled me to deal with some very difficult situations of late. Having bookmarked several areas in the book - I find myself returning back to those bookmarks and listening again and again to gather infinite wisdom!

    "One of the best..."

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. If you want to make the most out of it, listen, pause and think. Maybe also grab a pen and some paper and jot down ideas. You won't regret it!

    "Pure Genius... but play it a double speed"

    Seriously I love the work of Eckhart Tolle but if I had listened at normal speed I would have had to give this a 1 star review. He speaks so painfully slowly and without any drama or character to his voice that it is almost impossible to listen.

    The audible app allows you to play back at different speeds and what do you know if you play him at 1.5x he sounds much better.

    "hypnotic"
    Where does A New Earth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Close to the top


    What did you like best about this story?

    its message


    Have you listened to any of Eckhart Tolle’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it is ultimately repetitive so the message is best heard over multiple sittings


    Any additional comments?

    If everyone read this book and could understand what the author was trying to say, then the world would be a much happier and healthier place.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Echart's Voice is so easy on your ears, a little strange at first but in the long run he's addictive


    Do you have any additional comments?

    There is no point in answering all the questions as this book, you are either ready for or your not, ultimately read it with your mind wide open and if you do allot of stuff just sorts itself.
    Thank you Echart for this wonderful contribution to explaining LIFE as it should be (im my opinion)

    "Intersesting and worthwhile "

    I enjoyed this book and will listen to it a few times more. There is quite a lot to take on but the balance is ok. I look at these kind of books as having some useful information and here we are treated pretty heavily with the Ego or Eagle as he says it. That is the only piece of pronunciation that bothered me and its worth it having the writer read.

    After a few more listens I noticed that he states that the book is not a an "interesting" one to be pick up and read whenever the reader fancies but I shall let my title remain as I did find much of in interesting. I found much of the information in the book relatable to so this helps matters a great deal. I see that he has a lot of books out which I find rather odd.

    If for any reason one day you suddenly saw everything quite differently or felt strangely more aware than usual to your surroundings this book may be worth looking into. Didn't like the pain body topic because it made me feel uncomfortable but there is maybe a reason behind that.
